i really could do with some help and advice bit of a long history but will try to be short as possible
last year started having some severe shoulder/chest pain paramedic came to my house thinking was having heart problems but was then told it was muscular problem so thought nothing of it took pain meds felt better.Then 2 mths later started to get a shock jolt feeling in my body when i moved my head balance was awful leg tremors couldnt hold things properly had trouble sleeping etc etc sent to neuro for test they thought it was MS but fortunately thst was a no by this time had 2 head MRI know had to go for a spinal MRI and this is what was found:
central canal stenosis c4-c5 with complex osthepthyes and cord compression without myeopathy
i must say dizziness and balance is lots better but i have know been in severe pain in shoulder and neck occpitual headaches the consultant has said surgery is not required at present and physio and accupunture and meds will help.have know been back and fourth from my docs nearly every week and signed off work with muscle strain iam so confused ?
physio said it not the stenosis thats my problem and there not bothered about it and you have no compression so you will be fine?????
docs have said the pain is muscle strain due to the stenosis????
the pain in my head and leg weakness are nothing to do with the stenosis???
i dont no what to do or think i find it hard to sleep hard to work and iam in tears nearly everyday the meds do help but where do i go from here???
